Feeling any closer to a certain color? Thinking that a specific color is triggering more pleasant feelings?
Well, you are right! Colors do have certain effects on us and we have discussed how and why colors have such immense influence on our psyche and physics in the previous post on our blog. Check it out if you want to learn more!
This weak’s color is the color of emerald forests, of the grass in your garden, of the voluptuous leaves on the trees in a park; green. Don’t you also feel refreshed and happier when you are walking through a park full of trees or just gazing at a green meadow under the shining sun? Even thinking of the green paradise that earth gives us makes us feel relieved. Let’s dive into what sort of influence the green color has on us.
Green is a very special color with strong mental, emotional and physical health benefits. It is strongly connected to physical nature and the spiritual realm, offering harmony between physics and the psyche.
The very first strength of the color green is its balancing qualities. Green is the middle color on the visible color spectrum; a transition between the ‘warm’ colors and the ‘colder’. As it is the midway color, it connects the warmer and colder colors schemes together, catalysing the color spectrum. Thus, green has an immense effect on balancing our emotions, because it is the bridge between the relaxing colder colors and stimulating warmer colors.
It is also related to the hearth chakra which governs the heart, breasts, lungs, and thymus gland, as well as an individual’s sense of trust, fearlessness, peace, generosity, gratitude, and connectedness. Hearth is the center of our soul, it is more insightful and harbours the love energy. This chakra and the color green also govern conscious change, transformation, building healthy boundaries, depth in relationships with others, emotional control, and foremost love for oneself.
With the blockage of this chakra one might feel that they are living under a veil that puts a distance between everyone in their life, might feel frustrated as they are having a hard time understanding themselves, their true needs and wants, they might find it difficult to listen to their heart thus might feel constantly confused and fail at deciding, even between the most simple options, like what to eat. It is of utmost importance to unblock and activate this chakra as it will turn the lights back on in your life. You can use the color green to activate the chakra. Using a lamp that will give out green hues will be ideal as it will wash you with color from head to toe.
The color green will give you a feeling of renewal, new life, freshness, growth, and balance. It is a very important healing color for the diseases associated with the hearth chakra such as heart diseases, immune system, chronic fatigue disorder, breast cancer, allergies, and asthma, as well as psychological disorders such as anxiety and panic disorder, major depression, and postnatal depression.
